I know you have posted about Catherine’s The Bakers’ Lounge before. She had a spot, got robbed a number of times, had to move, found a new location, lost the new location, got it back. Found money to renovate. Then her contractor left without finishing the job. She has had a long run of bad luck. Through it all she keeps baking. She’s made a ton of my children’s birthday cakes, and pies for Thanksgiving, you name it. She hosts a toddler and mommies tea for free once a week. And donates baked goods to lots of events.
Anyway, DCRA inspected her location yesterday, and shut her down because of the minor things that had not been completed by the contractor, who ghosted her.
She needs $2000 to finish the work. I set up a GoFundMe page for her here.
She and her company are a valued member of the NEDC community and I hope we can come together to save her shop.”
